Curriculum - the Integrated Dialogue Model

All of the Professional Dialogue educational programmes accredited by the Academy are based on the Integrated Dialogue Model, the design of which has been realised through first-hand research and practice over the past 40 years (recorded in A New Kind of Dialogue by Peter Garrett).

Focus One - Bringing Dialogue into the Room

Participants develop the capability to bring Dialogue into any grouping of participants, in an organisation or related organisations, to help them to develop a common understanding, and to transfer those skills to others thereby making their role redundant. 


Accreditation is awarded through a three-stage developmental process of self-assessment, followed by peer assessment and faculty assessment against developmental criteria endorsed by the Academy's Professional Standards and Accreditation Board.   


Participants are accredited as Professional Dialogue Practitioners by the Academy, entitling them to run Academy-certified Programmes for others, to use the Academy logo on their correspondence, business cards, and website, and to progress to accreditation as a Professional Dialogue Consultant.   

The Faculty

All faculty are accredited practitioners and registered accreditors with the Academy of Professional Dialogue.  Visiting faculty members are drawn from Academy-accredited Professional Dialogue Practitioners.
